The best just may be the one on Reckoning - 10/31/80.

Love JG's tone on the 74 versions, but hate the vocals

4-23-77 sweet
5-7-77 could be the all timer for me
11-30-79 power
10-10-82 punch
8-21-83 bombs
10-12-83 Billy and Mick
9-12-88 simply sublime
6-9-90 band was really firing

Thanks for the great read! I gravitate towards 5/7/77 and 10/8/82 in KC (correct date?) for my cassidy fix. Ernie Bo-Peep

The show you refer to was Starlight 8-3-82.
I tend to gravitate towards another Starlight show, 9-3-85 for my Cassidy fix.

Probably my favorite of the Bobby tunes, and this is definitely my favorite version ever:

The jam section is mind-blowing and the return back into "Flight of the seabirds..." is flawless.

Thanks for the date correction, I knew I had that wrong. I'll have to devote some time to cassidy later, I'm sure all these are fine. What I like is the spooky jam before the last chorus, for example, without a net.

Really great lyrics and tune and there are many excellent versions throughout the years. There is a nice version on The DP Cow Palace 1974 release. As well as 2 Acoustic versions on the Expanded Reckoning release from 1980.
Here is a Birdsong>Cassidy from The Greek 1981 that I have always loved.

I'll second ya, Capt. I've always liked the Cow Palace '74 version--the song's debut in fact. The arrangement is very similar to the studio version from Ace and sounds quite different than the "Cassidy"s of '76 onward.
